Baruch Dayan Emet
For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; -- 2 Samuel 14:14Not the first time I've said Baruch Dayan Emet on this this blog, although once per year is quite enough. Relative died this afternoon, losing her second battle with lymphoma.
Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah. Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling. But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah. -- Psalm 49:12-15
